Just announced! Stampin’ Up! has introduced a brand new clear option in rubber stamping! Photopolymer stamps!
This top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time. What makes them so great?
- They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
- They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
- Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
- They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time.
This new stamping option is available on a trial basis if they are popular more photopolymer set will be coming! Currently there is 1 photopolymer stamp set available: Designer Typeset.
This is a fun little set! I made 3 super simple note cards using Designer Typeset stamp set. I kept the designs simple on purpose. I wanted the stamp image design to be the focus. I used the 2011-2013 In Colors as my color scheme. The color combination is: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, and Lucky Limeade.
Let’s look at the first note card:
I love this little card. The with photopolymer stamps you can bend the pennant strand into a swoop instead of a straight line. Placing each letter into a pennant triangle was very easy to do.
For the next card I wanted to try to line up letters to form words without using the stamp-a-ma-jig.
It came out pretty good if I do say so myself! I found it easy to stamp each letter. Since the stamps are clear and you can see the paper through the stamps. These letters are small and they stuck well to the acrylic blocks and didn’t fall off plus they didn’t wiggle when I stamped. Just like any stamping be sure to stamp straight down with an even pressure.
On the last note card I wanted to line up the letters for each word on the acrylic block and then stamp it as an entire word. I also wanted to feature some of the other stamps in the set so I decorated the pennants with those stamps.
The letters are just a little bit further apart then I like but not a show stopper for me. The letters stuck well to the acrylic block as a full word. They didn’t fall off or shift while stamping.
All in all I was quite pleased with the Designer Typeset stamp set. It’s a versatile and easy to use little set. Plus it stamped a clean image. I can see myself using this stamp set in my scrapbooking too particularly for stamping dates. Give this new photopolymer set a try. After you try it share your projects and thoughts with me.
